Brandon Moore, a defensive end who was undrafted out Texas in 2013 and recently claimed on waivers by the Redskins, has been suspended for the first four games of the 2014 regular season, per a league source.
The reason for the suspension isn’t known. It was communicated to the various NFL teams on Tuesday’s personnel report.
Typically, four-game suspensions are meted out under the substance-abuse policy or the policy regarding performance-enhancing drugs.
Moore spent most of the 2013 season on the Chargers’ practice squad. He also spent time with the Broncos and Chiefs, who released him in March.
